Teachers on Ice
Thanks to funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the Students on Ice Foundation is pleased to offer five fully funded positions for secondary level science teachers from across Canada to join the Students on Ice 2018 Arctic Expedition.
The goal of the Teachers on Ice Scholarship Program is to recognize science educators in Canada who:
- Share the Students on Ice mission of inspiring, engaging and educating youth;
- Demonstrate a holistic approach to teaching and learning in their current science classroom(s); and
- Empower students to be active and positive agents of change in their home communities and beyond.
Selected teachers will be provided a professional development opportunity that offers a new level of scientific awareness through an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural and experiential context situated in the Canadian and Greenlandic North. In turn, such an opportunity impacts not only participating teachers’ professional growth, but also that of their current and future students, colleagues and the broader personal and professional communities in which they are part.
Teachers on Ice scholarship recipients will engage in all programming aspects of the expedition and will serve as expedition staff members with assigned student support responsibilities, along with other optional program responsibilities. Once accepted, all of these additional options will be shared as part of registration.
Deadline: Applications must be received by April 24th, 2018 by 11:59pm EST. Applications received after the deadline will not be accepted. *Note that you can save your application and return to it any time prior to the deadline.
